The Holy Grail Pizza Recipe

In the world of low-carb living, giving up pizza is one of the most difficult things anyone can do. You probably grew up eating pizza and, unless you're a robot incapable of feeling joy, it's one of your favorite foods. There are several recipes out there to replace a standard pizza crust - flax seed meal, almond meal, cauliflower - but nothing compares in terms of taste and ease of preparation than the Holy Grail Pizza.

To make the Holy Grail Pizza, you will need the following ingredients: 

-3 cups of shredded cheese, either mozzarella or cheddar, or both
-3/4 cup of ground almonds
-1 egg
-Large no-stick frying pan

To start, lightly melt the cheese in a large bowl in the microwave until it's all soft and gooey. Take it out and add the almond flour and the egg. Mix by hand until all the ingredients are thoroughly combined. Don't use an electric mixer, as the mixture tends to get really gooey and could become ruined by the mixer. 

Once it's mixed, spread it in a frying pan lightly coated with some no-stick cooking spray. Cook each side until golden brown, making sure it doesn't fall apart when you flip it over. Once it's cooked evenly on both sides and the middle is no longer gooey, remove from the pan and place in the refrigerator to cool down. 

Once it's cool, add your toppings. Since this is a low-carb pizza, you will want to use low-carb alternatives, such as low-carb organic pizza sauce and most likely a lot of meta and vegetable toppings. If you're worried about excess fat, add very little or no cheese, as the pizza itself is comprised of a lot of cheese. 

Once you've topped the pizza, bake in an oven at 375 degrees until the cheese is sufficiently melted.
